纳什维尔——32位来自高等教育的领导者, k - 12教育, 政府, 业务, and nonprofit organizations have been invited by the State Collaborative on Reforming Education (分数) to participate in the 2021-22 cohort of the 完成田纳西领导学院 (CTLI).

与亨特研究所合作, 分数 will provide learning opportunities for CTLI participants and translate that learning into action during the one-year program. The goal of CTLI is to eliminate barriers to postsecondary education 和完成 in Tennessee — work that is made more urgent due to education disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Community college enrollment rates dropped significantly in the fall of 2020, 尤其是黑人和西班牙裔学生,分数总裁兼首席执行官大卫·曼苏里说. “Given the compounding effect the pandemic is having on college enrollment, 持久性, 和完成, it is more urgent than ever that we partner with the leaders in this cohort to ensure equitable opportunity for all Tennessee students to attend and complete postsecondary education.”

到2025年,Lumina基金会预计 美国60%的成年人 will need education beyond high school in order to obtain gainful employment. 根据卢米娜基金会的最新数据, Tennessee’s college attainment rate is just shy of 47 percent.

自2019年以来, 分数 has partnered with The Hunt Institute to provide national perspective for CTLI participants and help lead them in translating what they learn into action in their communities.

“在过去的三年里, we’ve been impressed with the way in which CTLI has brought together a diverse group of thought leaders from across Tennessee,亨特研究所总裁兼首席执行官Dr. Javaid Siddiqi. 在过去的同辈成员中, we’ve seen an immense increase in leadership capacity and knowledge regarding higher education issues. I’m confident that we’ll see further improvements in higher education as we develop more leaders capable of championing education reform in their local communities and across the state. We are excited to continue our partnership with 分数 and look forward to supporting these efforts for years to come.”
